Introduction to

Tear Trough Fillers

What most people consider to be a “hollowed” eye appearance is often the effect of having a depletion of fat tissue in your tear trough. This condition is often an inherited trait or the result of aging, but can also come from lifestyle choices, presenting a tired and possibly older-looking appearance. The good news is that you don’t have to live with this look if you’re wanting to change it. Dr. Christopher Manios strives to help his patients in the Danville, Blackhawk, and San Ramon areas find a refreshed appearance with just a few injections of dermal filler. To learn more about this treatment, please keep reading below.

What are Tear Trough Fillers?

Tear Trough Fillers are injectable treatments that are used under the eyes to add volume beneath your eyelids. While there are several options available for this treatment, the most frequent filler utilized is Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which is a synthetic gel-like substance that your body is capable of naturally producing. After being injected into your skin, the HA increases fullness and decreases indentations.

What’s the first step?

If you’re interested in Tear Trough Fillers in the Danville, Blackhawk, San Ramon, or surrounding communities, your first step is to schedule your consultation with Dr. Manios. When you come into our boutique Medical Spa, you will be able to address your concerns, express your aesthetic desires for the treatment results, and have your eyes examined and evaluated. Dr. Manios will ask you questions regarding your medical history to make the best decisions for your health and personal safety, and then use the information he gathers to create your procedure plan. If you agree with the plan that he makes, you can get your treatment performed immediately afterward. If for whatever reason you would like to reschedule, our Patient Coordinator will be more than happy to help you select the best date and time for your procedure.

What to expect on your Tear Trough Filler appointment with Dr. Manios

What to Expect on the Day of Tear Trough Fillers

When you are ready for your Tear Trough Filler treatment, you will first make yourself comfortable in our reclining chair. Your skin will be disinfected to avoid infection and we will apply a topical anesthetic to make your experience more tolerable and to help prevent any bruising. In some situations, you may be provided an ice pack instead to place against your lower eyelids. Both techniques will help reduce any pain by numbing the treatment area.

Once you’re ready, Dr. Manios will take a syringe containing the filler and inject it into the skin beneath your lower eyelid(s). After injecting the filler, he will carefully withdraw the needle and then lightly massage the area to help spread the filler around. If the two of you are satisfied, he will move on to the other eyelid and repeat the process.

Tear Trough Fillers Recovery

You will be able to go home after your treatment, but you will likely experience some swelling, bruising, and redness. We do recommend having a family member or friend available to give you a ride home in case you have difficulty seeing. These symptoms should disappear within 24 hours, but in some cases, may take up to 72 hours. You may notice some visible changes practically immediately, but it will take between one and two weeks to see the full results.

Before you leave, we will provide you with some post-treatment instructions to ensure the best results and the most comfortable recovery process. These instructions may include:

  • Avoid intense activity for 24 to 48 hours
  • Apply ice during the first 48 hours
  • Avoid sleeping face down
  • Use your fingers to gently massage any lumpy areas
